Madrid-based producer Skygaze specialises in dreamy, mesmeric dance music that sounds best listened to in the very early hours of the morning. Drowned is no exception and features waves of soft, hazy synths and crisp electronic drum rolls from which broken fragments of vocal samples occasionally emerge.

UK singer-songwriter Sivu has recorded a reworking of the Nirvana classic Dumb, from the band's In Utero album. True to form, he’s replaced Kurt Cobain’s ragged guitar-playing with a sombre synthesiser drone, which provides a platform for his typically floaty vocal harmonies.
London producer Just Ben has sent us his latest track, a fantastically chilled-out and soulful dance track. In fact, 10 Forward might be even smoother and more funky than Love Sensation, the last track Just Ben sent us. That’s no mean feat.
To mark the release of his debut album Human, which came out last week, techno producer Max Cooper has exclusively shared a binaural mix with us, which features the new album’s lead track Woven Ancestry.
Binaural recordings create a 3D sound experience: music seems to come from multiple different directions, as if you were sitting in the room with the musicians. The effect only works if you’re listening with headphones, though. So put on a pair of cans, close your eyes, and immerse yourself in the music!
The mix, which was recorded live and also features the tracks Meadows and Gravity Well, was created using 4DSOUND, a rig consisting of 48 speakers arranged in 16 columns, which allows producers to spatially design the sounds within tracks. You can watch a video of Cooper explaining the project here.
Only You is a chilled-out, silky smooth liquid drum and bass track by Atlanta-based producer Sub Terrestrial. One for the end of the night.
Here's a new demo by French producer Junior Size - a thumping techno track called The Dreamer.
